|Williamsburg Pumpkin Ale
Aromas begin with sweet malts, fresh nutmeg, and light cinnamon. First sip
tells you this is not an over spiced bad beer calling itself a pumpkin ale.
Rather think of a marzen or brown ale with biscuits, caramel and brown
sugar maltiness in an ongoing pumpkin background. Note, I did not say
pumpkin pie. This brew brings out pumpkin unclouded by cloying spices.
If you have to have a pumpkin beer make it this one.
Overall rating:- very good
|Blue Moon Vintage Blonde Ale
Wait, is this really from Blue Moon? Yes and it won a gold medal for
fruit beers from the GABF under the name "C-Blonde". It's as much
a champagne as it is a beer. It's well carbonated with grapes and
light fruit flavors throughout. The winey overtones (from Chardonnay
grapes) are nicely supported by noticeable wheat beer background
notes. The finish is dry and crisp. A festive and unique beer.
Overall Rating - Very Good
|Elysian Men's Room Ale
This 5.6% ABV red ale opens with faint
smells floral hops, grass, malts, caramel,
and bread. Malt dominates the little flavor it
has along with tastes of crackers and
caramel. It's lightly carbonated, balanced
session beer but has little to distinguish it
from any others of it's type. Boring but
drinkable if nothing better available.
Overall Rating: Below Average.
